Yesterday was one of the busiest days at the cotton exchange. In the case of McCallum vs. Jobe, a I jury of the first circuit court yesterday reiuraeu a veruici iur uic ucicuusuu Sam Wells, the well-known news man on the Little Rock railroad, has our thanks for papers cl tounday, in au vance of the mails. To-day is the last of the present term of the second chancery court, which will adj nun to its next regular session, the first Monday in April. While engaged in moving cotton bales on Shelby street, near Beale, yes terday afternoon, William Moody was knocked down by a mule hauling a drav loaded with ten barrels of flour. One wheel ran over and crushed his right ankle. Jim Larkin. a noted hack-driver, was j-esterday arrested for being impli cated In the robberv oi nve mousauu six hundred dollars from Annie Fisher, who thinks she will be able to recover the money and punish the guilty par ties. Pat Byrne was also arrested for larceny from the person. The police board met yesterday after noon for the purpose of registering the names of the members of the force, with a view to make such changes as may be deemed proper. The board will meet to-daj', when it is understood that some changes will be made preparatory to swearing in the force for the present ad ministration. A meeting of the Shelby county as sessors was held in the county court building yesterday morning, but no definite action was taken, as only the books of the second and eleventh dis tricts are made out. The reports indi cate a reduction of twenty per cent, on property on the assessment of last year. The meeting adjourned to April 3d. Few have any idea what financial benefits result from the visits of theatri cal companies and minstrel troupes. Yesterday Cal Waguer's troupe pur chased eighty dollars worth of hats, for ty dollars worth of boots, several new suits of clothes, besides incidental ex penses during their stay probably two or three hundred dollars and their hotel bill, which will not fall far short of two hundred and dftv dollars. This large expenditure of money is one reason, irrespective of many others, why visiting troupes, and especially Happy Cal Wagner's, should be generously supported. Night before last one of the build ings in Madame Etchvarue's French garden, Fort Pickering, wa3 destroyed by fire, entailing a total loss of nine thousand seven hundred dollars, of which amount fifteen hundred dollars was in furniture. On the buildiug there was au insurance of two thousand dol lars in the Queen insurance company. There was no insurance ou the furni ture, in addition to which two hundred dollars' worth of plants and llowers were lost. The building had been but recently refitted and repaired for the ap proaching spring and summer seasons, during which time the French garden was a place of popular resort. A few minutes before twelve o'clock last uight a charcoal closet in the third story of the buildiug at the southwest corner of Main and We3t Court streets, was discovered to be on fire. Mr. Har gau, a private watchman, seeing the glare of the fiames through the window, hastened to the AdamB street engine house, where he gave the alarm, The fire-department turned out prompt ly, and soon suppressed the fire, Dr. Hurd, who rooms in the building, in the meantime, having checked the flames by throwing water into; the apartment. In so doing, his hand was painfully burned, and his luug9 suffered I severely from the smoke. The fire orig- 1 inated in the charcoal, and the damage done amounts only to two hundred dol lars, covered by an insurance of twelve thousand dollars on the building, which is owned by General Jos. B. Williams and ColonelJ. F. Jett Mr. Hargan a"ud Dr. Hurd deserve great credit for their prompt action. The commissioners of the West Tennessee lunatic asylum met last night at tue omce or Dr. w. JS. Itogers, on Main street, and elected Dr. J. M. Bran nock, of McKenzie. superintendent, and E. C. Jones, of Memphis, architect. These selections are judicious, the first named gentleman being an able phy sician and accomplished scholar, while Mr. Jones is well known here as an ar chitect in every respeat suited for the work before him. At nine o'clock thi morning the commissioners go by special train on the Tennessee and .Mississippi railroad to examine the property of Peter Mitchell and William Webb, lo cated five and four miles from the city, to see whether such be suitable for the site of the asylum. In the afternoon they visit the Worsham and Duncan places, six and twelve miles from the city, on the Paducah road. To-morrow they leave for Jackson, and thence visit Humboldt and Brownsville, all of which places offer to donate the land (three hundred acres as called for by law), for the site of the proposed institu tion.

Winn Presents Cornstalk Cnues lo Colonel C. I. McLean and Mr. T. B. Folger, Two of the Oldrxt Citlien of Memphis. Specu of .if r. Wiou on the Production or l orn Mcmponse Itf Colonel 31c Lean Highly tsuEKestive ttciuarlis Plant Jloro Corn. Jet Teunestee Become Independent Corn.Plnntera mid Exemption l.nwn A New Corn Law Eengnc. A remarkable presentation occurred in the business house of Mr. K. J. B. L Winn, on Main street, a few days ago, which has been developed by an ap peal reporter. It is worthy of being chronicled for the very suggestive senti mentsto which the ceremonial gave rise, as well as from the age, experience and long residence in the county of the veteran of tne war ot ibis, anu venera ble printer and editor, Colonel C. D. McLean, to whom the presentation was made. Tennessee, in 1S40, wa3 the first corn-producing fatate in tne union. Plentv was then in her borders, and prosperity within her palaces. Now her impoverished farmers buy their corn and are almost beggars. Would not return to the corn-producing habit im prove her finances and build up her waste places? If her fertile acres were once more emblazoned with the banners of millions of corn tassels, waving in the summer breeze, would not fatness and shrift return to the laud. If every acre were planted iircorn, and exempt ed from execution, would there be any executions to levy on neriarmersr inese are pregnant questions, -and are well worth considering. We understand that the kaiser. William of Germany has learned to value Indian corn-cakes, which shows him to be a man of excel lent taste. The export of Indian corn from the United States is growing enor- mousiy. rne preparation oi twiiu-urieu meal has made that article as staple as flour produced from wheat. The United States exports of corn alone in 1870 amounted to seventeen million dollars exclusive of meal in barrels. What it might be, with the mouth of the Missis sippi opened, through the Barataria canal, can well be conjectured. With cheap inland transportation, it would grow to be an enormous and profitable export trade. Tennessee has the soil and the climate to produce more of it, and in better quality, than any other State. An important consideration, in connection with it, is that it would not require naif tne number ot nanas to produce a consideration not to, be des pised in tne present scarcity or tarrn labor. But we are keeping the reader from the speeches made by the two notable "old folks," who, by the cere mony and suggestions made tnereon, hope to revive the good old times in our btate. God speed tnem in tnis worK. MR. K. J. B. L. WINN'S REMARKS. The presentation to you, Colonel Mc Lean, of a corn-stalk stair, cut from the favorite grounds of Colonel William Strong, deceased, is both pleasant and honorable. The cane is made longer than tne usual waiting stall, ana wltn out ornaments, because thus it is rustic and becoming, and is as easy and pleas ant for use. When I revert to the his tory of our noble State, and especially its former agricultural prosperity, m ootn of which you have borne a prominent and hohorable part, and when I recall your vast experience, your remarkable memory oi events, ana your clear judgment as to public measures and men, I feel that this pre sentation is most appropriate, wnen we were young, Tennessee was the champion corn-growing State in the Union, anu tuereforejtnis staiK I regaru as a fit emblem of her former agricultu ral greatness. Please keep it and use it as a memorial or our departed mentis, who assisted in shaping that greatness. Our State may again rise to her former proud and commanding position in tne production of this great cereal. by proper legislative protection of the corn-growers. Had I any influence in shaping our legislation, I would draw a circle of protect 'jn around every corn- neld as potent as mat wmcn Kicnelleu drew around his person, to defend him self from political persecution, by ex empting every grain of corn in field or crib from sheriffs execution, excepting only for land-rent. Tnis would soon enrich every farmer, and enable him to pay off every debt and become an inde pendent man. Corn is the common life-interest of the family, and even of tne beasts and rowi3 or tne rarm. Tne common laborers in maturing the same are entitled to its use, and merit the re ward or its life-giving properties. This is simple justice. The State can afford to be generous in protecting these, its sturdy supporters, at you tnus spare tnem and protect tnem, you will soon have the high pleasure of seeing our people fill up their cribs, enlarge their grounds and announce that they nave corn for sale, Instead of being " hewers of wood and drawers of water." We will have larger ears and stalks, fuller cribs, fatter stock, and be a haonier people than ever we were in the days of our greatest prosperity, and will only be called to minister to the lame, sick, dear little oues and the old folks at home. which will indeed be a pleasure. Let other poducts be subject to execution, but corn never! never! With her peo ple thus protected, the laws of Tennes see will be surpassed by no code in the world for simple justice, and wise, hon est policy. RESPONSE OF THE VETERAN, COLONEL C. D. M LEAN. I accept with pleasure the cornstalk cane, and most Heartily indorse the sentiments so well expressed, and earn estly hope to see your mostsanguine ex pectations realized on the subject of corn, wmcr nas neretoiore been tne mainstay of life in our blessed old State of Ten nessee, both for man and beast. You will not forget the great corn-league which agitated old England under the Peel ministry. Let us have our corn law league too here, until the production of our staple shall be restored and the reign of prosperity shall return. Now, sir, in passing through the coun try, you no longer find the farmer's crib well filled, but you see his slock of horses, mules, cattle and hogs all carrying the poor man's mark high in bones, but low in flesh. Therefore let us partially quit planting cotton, and when we come again to pitch our crop3 devote more la bor to produce cereals, depend more upon ourselves and live more within our means. I accept your proffered present and shall use it, like the staff' of the pa triarch of old, to assist my declining age in an easy descent to tho vale whose shadows invite me to the long repose, which we must all find. Such a staff is indeed "the staff of life" to the feeble footsteps of age, and the emblem of that "staff of life" to a people overburdened and weary with many vexations and calamities, and praying to renew their youth and strength from that abundant and teeming soil and genial clime which God, in his goodness, has given to ourselves aud for the use of our pos terity forever. The interesting ceremony here closed and the sentiment of the select friends E resent was echoed in the words, "The est iu the world !" A similar cane was presented to T. B. Folger, Esq., our poet-mathematician, and we await his response, which must have been appro priate anu eloquent. LATEST Alt RIVALS. We are now opening our spring and summer goods.

First Are you paid for printing Captain Gifts letters upon Cali fornia? If not, then upon wliat idea are you doing it? Is it with the hope of getting as many white men as can raise the necessary amount of money to pay their way, to leave thia. country and go t to California? If this is your object and Captain Gift's intention, then it Is all right and proper. Is Captain Gift tho. agent of any land company, or interest- I ed in any speculation in California that he is laboring so hard to induce our people to become dissatisfied with home and go to California? When does Captain Gift start to California to re main? Why does he still come back to this poor place and quiet a country of such splendid industry? Is the Appeal working for the benefit of the people here or for California Interest? All these letters seem directly intended to drum up emigrants. Why is the Appeal and Captain Giftengage'd in such an enter prise? Please answer and satisfy your subscribers, and oblige one who will stay and abide the fate of Memphis. O. A. G. So far as the Appeal is concerned, we can only say to our correspondent that we have but one idea in giv ing Captain Gilt the space he has so far satisfactorily filled in several successive issues of the Ap peal, and that is,that ourreaders might become as intelligent as he is in regard to one of the greatest of the States of the Union. As to whether the Appeal is workingin the interests of Memphis, we think our correspondent can see for him self by a more careful reading of our pa per than his question would imply. For the rest, we will let Captain Gift speak for himself, as no doubt he will do, and to the point. Eds. Appeal. THE TEMPERANCE CRUSADE. Editors Appeal -The coming army of temperance women casts its shadow in the form of a prayer by "Carrie," in the Appeal of March 19lh, urgently oeaeecntng uie Jiempuis ladies to begin the good work of prayings God to close dnnking-saloons, gambling-hells, and h uses of ill-fame in our demoralized city. This has been no doubt anticinat ed by the evil-doers ever since the cru sade began in Ohio; but It is not report ed whether precautionary measures against these feminine assaults have been adopted by the "persecuted' venders ot mean whisky. They think ing, pernaps, mat a lew cnnstian prayers will not change the price of a dram anv more than the fasting and praying of pious men anu women stayed tne yellow-fever contagion. This spasmodic enort or ladies to suppress Intemperance may not require lime and coal-tar at last to affect that which christians thought God would do in the epidemic; were they- to call .lone and loud enough without further trouble on their part to use practical methods: but will tney not find after the excitement at tending female prayer-meetings the saloons will continue to flourish in their business houses of ill fame still open for dishonorable women and "honorable men," drunk enness seen just the same at every street-corner; gambling-hells tempting young men away from their sweethearts, who are allowed their company only on conventional occasions at church or theater. Nevertheless, some good will come out of it. If the Saloon-keeper will not change business at once by this mortl suasion, through humiliated pride, the ladies will arise In a more le gitimate way of reformation by demand ing the ballot for themselves, to decide if these dens of iniquity are to be licensed for their husbands' and sons' ruin. Then the self-respect of a citi zens' legal voice will be more effectual than a suppliant's nraver that is fonrotton soon ns ut tered, with no permanent bene fit to any one as creeping precedes walking so shouting and sinpinrr in public places will enable the timid sis ters to quietly deposit a vote with im punity, which may close distilleries the fountain of mesa vicps thon thn dramshops, of a necessity, will cease to send forth the poisonous fluid. There fore, "Carrie," urge on to the help of the Lord to-day to-morrow will bring the sad experience that the laws of man are mighty and will prevent the nowr of God to establish justice on earth to women, unless thev prove themselves capable of revolutionizing the social and political world in a more intellectual mode of warfare than psalm-singing and street-preaching. a. t. d. muel ER THE DIP. AND THE SIDE WALKS. Editors Appeal We have anx iously looked for the Appeal as a wel come guest in our house; we have looked uponj it as truthful, reliable, and as a good adviser, but it seems that you have '.taken a Mueller fit, and under take to make us believe things we know to the contrary. How can we believe theJBoston dip, the Redowa waltz, the Gorlitza to be new. We are sure we have.been acquaintedjjwith jthem since 1656. But we may perhaps forgive vou lor running that sensation into the ground, and turn our attention to -me so greatly needed reforma tion in the sanitary condition of the city. We really congratulate the citizens, par ticularly those who cannot run away from sickness, on the reform in that di rection. We are also glad to notice that cotton, boxes, barrels, goods, etc., have ueau removed irom the sidewalKs, and that from that nuisance ladles and gen tlemen are not in as much danspr of having their clothing rent, or of being compelled to wade mud from shon to shop. "But one thing lackest tnou yet.'' Oh, that the police, city council, Mayor Loague, Monsieur Mueller, the ooaru oi neaun, or somebody else, would or could impress upon the minds of some people that it is in strict accordance with all the rules of ivilization to observe deoortment in all places, though it be on the street. we cannot consider it respectable to form aline across the sidewalk or door way for a social chit-chat, thus block ading a public thoroughfare. Sidewalks we suppose to bo for the public to pass on, and not to be monopolized by a few to the discomfit of the many. We are sorry to see the vile habit indulged in by ooiu maie anu lemaie, wno seem quite unwilling to step aside and allow ladies and gentlemen to pass, and when gen tly pressed against to give them to un derstand that you would like to be per mitted to pass, should they step aside, it Is with reluctance, and they look at you, as much as to say, "You h'ave no right to pass this way- observer.

Baker and Farron are immense in their way, and- their way is not a bad way either. As dialect actors they have no superiors, especially in German char acters, to which they fit themselves with exceeding good taste, rare and an artistic finish . that little to be desired by an au They made their debut In skill, leaves dience. Memphis last night as "Chris" and "Lena," in a play of that name, written solely, no doubt, to bring them prominently 10 view and give them a chance to expend themselves in broad comedy that vocally or colloquially rendered always brought down the house. Now aud tueu we had glimpses of plot, and were intro duced two or three times to very serious business, but German comedy and Irish farce so largely predominated as to ex clude an idea or plot or plan irom me mind of lookers on. This is.so much the case, that were it not for one or two very i handsome scenes and situations j as, for instance, the camp, garden i and drawing-room scenes we could , wish that Baker and Farron kept the stage themselves from the rais- ing to the final dropping of the curtain. The songs and dances are all given with good taste, the former for the most part ; being especially rendered, with indica- i tions not merely of taste, but some study. They both enunciate clearly, so that not one word escaping them is lost upon the audience, and their gestures and postuies are . an admirable supplement to all they say or sing, The Mulligan Guards, a scene affordi KateVtTreTh0 3 to 1 1 1 . I , i " I .. L Farron. in V f irn,- the character of "Tim Fla- nerty,"- is a sKetcH of broad, musical ' farce, in its way equal to anything we L have ever seen. Itis supremely ridicu- 1 Ious and absurd, but all the better for that. Farron's Irishman is better even than his German girl, and that . is saying that it is a decided ' characterization that is certain to take j with all the audiences they may have j during the week. The peculiar make up and gait of "Tim" is a study from life, j and the accompanying songs and humor j are side-splitting. The house last night i was full, a compliment we hope tq.see repeated to-night. The bill, it will be seen, is a good one. ; Cal Wnjrner's Hlnslrels. Cal Wagner's minstrels, at Assembly ' hall, were greeted by a very large au- dience, among whom we were glad to j notice the presence of many elegant , ladies, who, doubtless, are also glad that i they attended what is admitted to be one of the most varied and pleasant , minstrel entertainments ever given here. The introductory part of j the programme was characterized by a display of wit and , humor, both novel and original, the , ATI m mon " f 7.

Of course the house was kept in a continual uproar of laughter. Good bye Old Home, as sung by Hawkins, enlisted the attention and elicited the admiration of every, one. Mr. Murphy sung Seeing Nelly Home with such feeling that he seemed to re vive the very melody of this ballad, which, in former years, was so popular. Green and Sadler, whose double statue and fancy dancing cannot be excelled, last night surpassed any ef fort we have ever seen in this feature of minstrelsy. Their original songs and dances are unequaled, and this feature alone is worth the price of admission. It is difficult for Sadler and Green to satisfy the greedy appreciation of the house when once they have appeared in their excellent specialties. The entire enter tainment was so good that a column would be required in speaking of each particular actor. To-night, there will be an. entire change" of programme, equally as varied and attractive as that of last night. A separate part of the house has been prepared for the colored people. There will be no matinee to-morrow afternoon, and to-morrow night will be the last performance. Reserved seats can be had from the agent at Assembly hall, No. 363 Main street, near Gayoso. There will of courte be a full house to night. Farron, the delineator. nnapproachnble Female Attend Robertson'sBusiness College Gro Grain, 3 inch, new shades, 25c. LEUBRIE'S.

Mothers would do well in cold, changeable weather to watch that their children are not permitted to plav around with bare legs, bare arms and bare bosoms. Many a little darling has been lost through a mother's imprudent pride, insisting on exhibiting the half naked beauty of her net. The feet should be kept warm with almost reli gious care, or the circulation becomes deranged. If cold is taken in conse quence of changing weather and want of caution in fortifying against those changes, let no time be lost in procuring a bottle of Mansfield's Hungarian Bal sam of Life. This great expectorant i and tonic will invigorate the lungs the ' first and most important thiner to be ! done soothe irritation of the throat, ease the breathing and looseu the mucus, ' thus mollifying and quickly removing j the cough.
